Technologies

CORTEX: The Cortex System provides 25% more contact between the ball and strings. The handle and the frame of Babolat Rackets that use the Cortex System are actively linked by the CDS (Cortex Dampening System) which filters and dampens the vibration that can interfere with racket feel. Unwanted high vibration frequencies are removed while low vibration frequencies are preserved, thus enhancing feel.

Aeromodular2 : The second generation of Babolat's AEROMODULAR technology. Features a frame with varying profiles at the throat, shaft and the head of the racquet, each of which are strategically shaped to reduce wind drag and boost swing speed. It features internal Woofer and Cortex systems.

FSI technology: Frame String Interaction, the 2015 Pure Drive´s FSI technology was designed around this new area: - Woofer system to bring more feel to player with each strike of the ball - Tighter stringing pattern in the sweetspot area A higher sweetspot for more power and comfort in the contact zone. A tighter string pattern for more dirctional control.

Very solid racquet. I demoed both the Pure Aero and the Pure Aero Tour and as expected found the Tour to be more stable and hit a heavier ball. However, unexpectedly I found the Tour to be more maneuverable? I had to put it on a scale to ensure I was playing with a 12 ounce racquet because I couldn't believe it. The TW review is spot on -- the Tour excels from all areas of the court. I've never served better just letting the racquet do the work, and volleys were surprisingly precise. Touch was a little better than expected (hey, it's a Babolat Aero/Drive type stick so I didn't expect much), and no elbow problems yet (which is generally present with stiffer sub 11.5 ounce racquets for me).

I have used this frame for a couple of weeks now and it's a big update compared to the 2013 APD. This new Pure Aero feels a good bit more solid compared to APD and the sweetspot is crisp and large. I found out that this stick works best as a "game destroyer" for the opponent. If you hit nasty shots, the type you read about in Brad Gilbert's "Winning Ugly," then this is a stick for you. It creates monster-topspin shots that make your opponent believe they will go long but then drops down close to the baseline and jumps up, and it leaves your opponent looks like you just had a mishit that caught them by surprise. The most effective weapon though is the slice. The stringbed bites and holds onto the ball a fraction longer and upon release the ball sneaks over the net so low it could barely fit an hair between the ball and the net and then the ball stays crazy low to the ground. On serves it feels best when hitting kick or sliced serves. Flat serves works good to, but not as effective as the kick or sliced serve. I first tried it with the factory strung SG Spiraltek but that was a big no-no in this frame as the strings moved like crazy and snapped very, very fast. When strung with a co-poly it feels much more solid and more controlled.
